    Despite winning their last two, my White Sox are just about the most pathetic team in baseball.* I challenge anyone to watch them play, and successfully resist the urge to wretch.

    Hitting?* Worst of any team with a DH.* Fielding?* 2nd worst in the league.* Base-running?* Beyond incompetent.* Pitching?* Well... actually, they're pretty good at pitching, which would matter if they could hit, field, or run worth a lick.* The worst part is, after eight years of chasing the championship dragon in the wake of 2005, the farm system is so depleted that I think I have a shot to start tomorrow in A ball.

    Hell it's gotten so bad that the manager, former Sox star Robin Ventura, can't even be bothered to show up to games anymore.

    The point is, I'm ready to light the season on fire, and start openly hoping for loses and a good draft pick.* But, what to do with the remaining three and a half months of the baseball season?* I can't just give up on the sport entirely, I love it too much.

    So, I'm selling my allegiance for the remainder of 2013.* If you think I should be following your favorite team until the end of October, pop me a tweet with your reasons.* I'll buy the winning team's hat, and watch their games.* If they're in the NL, I'll even go to a game when they're in Denver (or simply go to a game, if I pick the Rox).

    Those suggesting the Cubs, Tigers, Twins, Yankees, or Red Sox will get blocked, but I'm open to any of the other 24 teams.

    Today in the bag, I'm talking track and field excellence, yet another late add to the 2013 football roster, and the Miami Heat bouncing back in Game 2.
